That was some prize you landed... and you got a tarpon too! My very best congratulations.
Reading your report makes me want to get back to the sugar sands and mangroves; a hard day of fishing then a conch chowder and grilled yellowtail snapper finished off with key lime pie and a margarita.
Luckily, the striper fishing has been very good. I'd be down there with Jimmy Buffet if it weren't for that!
